Volkswagen MPV Review and Road Test

size: 1.6-litre S TDI BlueMotion

Fuel: Diesel

Fuel combined: 61.4 mpg

The Volkswagen 1.6 litre S TDI BlueMotion Technology has a fuel economy of 61.4 mpg is highly impressive for a seven-seater carrier.

The previous Touran troubled the pages of our Green-Car-Guide, but the model achieves excellent economy thanks to the application of Technology. At the same time, smallest MPV gets the new family first introduced by the Polo.

The is one of the most compact seven-seat at just under 4.4 metres in it’s barely longer a family hatch, and this is a advantage if you spend a lot of time in areas. The downside is you only get 121 of boot space with all the in place (although there’s a boot if used as a five-seater).

If the lack of boot space put you off, there’s better for the occupants. The interior, although in generally dark materials, is and in particular the middle row has three which are very wide and even to the extent that child seats can be positioned to each other – not all of the Touran’s rivals can achieve this. access is also excellent to the large rear doors, and our car had a huge double-length glass which should keep the happy spotting objects in the

However the Touran does slightly van-like due its very internal dimensions. In fact, the it can be used as a van in addition to a five or by folding all the seats down

As is usually the way with Volkswagen, feels well screwed The dashboard is a typically no-nonsense which is easy to use but lacks flair – put another way it appears basic. In particular the steering feels a little on the cheap there’s no steering wheel-mounted and we found that the wheel go low enough to give us an ideal position.

The secret to the excellent fuel is a 1.6-litre common rail engine which produces 104 bhp at rpm and 185 lb ft of torque between 1,500 and rpm. This is mated to a manual gearbox with the of the full suite of BlueMotion – including features such as and an indicator which tells you to change gear. It errs the side of economy side in the versus economy stakes; accelerating it feels like a heavy car with a relatively engine – which, when to a Golf, is what it is.

The Touran feels solid at speeds, but when negotiated wet corners there are definite to its levels of grip.

We actually to achieve 60 mpg during some of our in the Touran, which is something we can’t often say, and of the great levels of diesel result in a good range.

If you like diesels there’s Volkswagen’s excellent 1.2 litre TSI which is proving to be extremely appearing in a rapidly expanding of models. With 104 bhp at 5,000 rpm and 129 lb ft of from 1,550 to 4,100 rpm it far more performance than you expect thanks to turbocharging and injection. However if you plan to use the loading capacity on a regular it will be hard pressed to up.

The Volkswagen Touran S 1.2 TSI BlueMotion has a combined fuel economy of 47.9 mpg and CO2 emissions of 139 g/km, and £18,220.

Summary and Review

The is a well-engineered and refined compact MPV achieves fuel economy would have been superminis a few years ago. even reasonably priced and sharper than the old model. If you seven seats and you aren’t too about a lack of boot the Touran is a great option. more functional than but after all it’s designed to lots of family members in a workmanlike and efficient way, and it a very good job of that.
